Rebel can't keep the smile off her face

"If you guys knew the shy unremarkable me from Sydney’s Western suburbs, you’d know how much I had to overcome in my life to get to this point...and then against all odds, and with the visionary help of a malaria-induced hallucination became a successful international actress/writer/producer!

"Whoa."

Rebel revealed last year that she had decided to make 2020 her year of health and has since lost 60lbs.

Rebel has been focusing on exercise and eating proteins

During a virtual appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show, Rebel said turning 40 played a big part in her decision to get in shape and also said: "I've tried, like so many women out there, I've tried fads and diets and things before and I’m like, I need to do a really holistic approach to this, this time."

"My diet was mainly all carbs," Rebel added. "Which were delicious but for my body type, I needed to eat a lot more protein."
